Water and power are priority areas for leading Gabon towards emergence.
Access to drinking water for all citizens is a priority and energy is at the heart of the implementation of the Industrial Gabon pillar.
By 2016, several objectives will have been reached:
2.8 billion dollars will be invested in water and energy by 2016.
In order to meet the growing needs of the country and develop socio-economic activities in the regions, 3 new dams will be brought into operation between now and 2016:the Impératrice dam, the Fé 2 dam and Grand Poubara, the largest power project in Gabon.
To provide a swift response to the requirements of the population and industries of Gabon, two thermal power stations run on natural gas will produce 175 MW of green electricity by 2014.
